Guitar Hero “Marshall Stack” case-mod for the seriously hardcore

If there’s one game we’re obsessed with here on SlashGear it’s Guitar Hero – some members of the writing team apparently prefer playing it to reading Apple rumour sites!  So you can bet there’ll be some wailing and gnashing of teeth when the rest of the gang see this awesome Marshall Stack case mod enterprising Guitar Hero lover Knievel has constructed.



Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock controller compatibility questions answered

The launch of Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock is coming up quick. You can bet that we’ll be bringing you all of the juicy details just as soon as I get my hands on it. I do have a tidbit of information regarding compatibility issues with the new Les Paul.

There have been rumors around that the X-Plorer will/won’t work with Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock. I decided to go straight to the source and find out what Red Octane had to say about compatibility of the old and new controllers. Mind you, I only talked about the 360 controllers, as they have really been the only ones in question. Hit the jump for the full transcript of my Q&A with Bryan Lam of Red Octane.

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock – Seventeen new tracks announced

Yes, there has been a lot of coverage of Rock Band this week. However, we can’t forget about the franchise that got me addicted to a plastic guitar. Activision has just released seventeen new tracks for Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock. Hit the jump and check them out.

While a good bit of the surprise was spoiled by a leaked set list last month that appears to have been fairly accurate, we’re still glad to see the official announcement of these tracks. The game is set to be released on October 28. You can bet that this game will rock every bit as much as the first two.


Guitar Hero III tracklisting leaked

If you’re looking for an unfair advantage in your next friendly Guitar Hero tournament, perhaps you should swot up on the following list of songs.  They’re supposedly the finalised tracklisting for Guitar Hero III, next sequel to the insanely popular music games (and almost permanent distraction of SlashGear writer Chris Scott Barr).  As might be expected, there’s a fair mixture of trad rock and classics-in-the-making such as Muse’s Knights of Cydonia.

Full list for your perusal after the cut.


Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock – For the PC and Mac!

Anyone that reads SlashGear very often will probably have figured out that I’m a huge Guitar Hero fan. One of the things that has disappointed me about the series is the lack of support for the PC (and Mac). While I do have an Xbox 360 which can play Guitar Hero II and the upcoming Guitar Hero III, I still would love to play it on my gaming rig. It looks like I may finally have that opportunity with Guitar Hero III.

According to the guys at Aspyr which is the developer for Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, they have decided to bring it to both the PC and Mac, because they feel they can reach a greater audience, since everyone has a computer.


Air Guitar AG Riff Master Guitar Controller featuring KISS

Air Guitar, a company apparently specializing in high-end Guitar Hero controllers is set to begin releasing models made from real guitars featuring graphics of rock icons. One such example is KISS.

The pictured guitar is made from a Peavy guitar. Personally, I think it would be awesome to rock out on a real-ish guitar, especially with the Rock Band drum set being considerably closer to a real digital drum set than the current GH guitars are to a real guitar.


Rumor – Guitar Hero III to feature Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine

The competition between Guitar Hero III and Rock Band is really heating up as the launch dates inch closer.

So far they have you battling Slash from G&R, and having Bret Michaels from Poison lending you vocals, but now another name has cropped up.

I Can Play Guitar – The crappy Guitar Hero knockoff from Mattel

You have to wonder how many people have risen to the top of big companies simply by taking someone else’s great idea, changing it just enough to be really crappy and then putting it on the shelf for unsuspecting grandparents and relatives to purchase as a gift. Well, whoever came up with this little gem likely got some kind of a promotion I’m sure.


Guitar Hero DS – Closer to reality than you think
